The Heart Dance a poem for you


The Heart Dance    a poem for you                                     ayaz daryl nielsen



The Heart Dance

Open your heart
   inside may be a sigh,
   a stone, a river,
   a golden throne
   or a sliver of ice
Come, open your heart!

Open your heart
   inside may be a stumble,
   a dance, grandmother’s lost 
   eyelash, or even
   empty yearning
Come, open your heart!

Open your heart
   inside, a drinking song,
   an immortal’s kiss, or even
   ink dark loneliness
Come, open your heart!

Come with your open heart
   we’ll whirl and zumba
   the dance of a found
   eyelash, of an immortal’s
   kiss, of an ice sliver
   melting, melting, melting

Come, heart of 
   all hearts

Come, beloved
   and dance.



- see you in a moment -
